In 1965, the miniskirt made its first appearance in London. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. led the Civil Rights march from Selma to Montgomery Alabama, Operation Rolling Thunder launched in Vietnam, race riots broke out Watts California and the 1965 Cadillac DeVille brought new style lines, without the line’s signature fins.

1965 Cadillac DeVille Body Line Changes

The Body lines on the DeVille became long and flat with a sleek look that said goodbye to the curves and fins from earlier generations of the car. The shape of the headlights was changed to let the Cadillac company widen the grill of the DeVille, and Cadillac added its first set of curved frameless side windows.

My planned post was a general overview of the 1965 Cadillac DeVille, the fact that I found a STUNNING one listed for sale on eBay was just a bonus. The seller in the eBay ad seems willing to answer any questions about this beauty, which has obviously been a treasured machine.

According to the owner, this Caddy runs excellent, has the original 429 engine in it. The oil has been changed regularly. A Holley sniper EFI was professionally installed. It has an electric fuel pump which was installed in the back by the tank. A Pertronix electronic ignition replaces the points.

It has Caddy Daddy front disc brakes installed as well as a new master cylinder and booster.  The suspension has been entirely rebuilt. The car is garage kept.

The owner also shared some negatives about this Cadillac, and I’ll let you visit the listing if you want to know about those details.
